    What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel. I couldn’t put The Wedding Date down. I love a good romance and this delivered from the first page to the last. Alexa Monroe is a great heroine—smart, funny, and full of the anxieties women know intimately. And when she meets the handsome doctor Drew Nichols in an elevator, it’s the beginning of an adventure in falling in like and then lust and then love. It was also nice to read a fun novel about an interracial relationship. One of the best books I’ve What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel. I couldn’t put The Wedding Date down.

Being stuck together leads to them going to a wedding together. After that, this couple just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Drew is a pediatric surgeon from LA and Alexa lives close to San Fransisco as the mayor’s chief of staff. Both have important jobs and busy lives, but they can’t seem to stop seeing one another. They figure out a way to make it work. Although nothing is defined with them, you can tell (even if they can’t) that they starting to fall. It’s just unclear how this will work between them… Alexa is a refreshing heroine. She is spunky, fun, independent, and career driven. I loved her personality. Drew was also a fun guy- he was sweet, charming, and smart. These two truly were a fantastic match! Even if they didn’t see how perfect they were for each other at first, as a reader, I could see it! Their love story was fast paced and light, and also felt realistic. I adored them both and their connection. I love a good, swoony romance, and The Wedding Date really hit the spot for me! I found this book highly entertaining, flirty, fun, and sweet as can be. I recommend it and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author! “I’m so glad I got stuck in that elevator with you.” she said.
“Me, too.”

    My new favorite adult contemporary novel of the year! What a fun, sweet, HONEST portrayal of two people falling in love. I felt like I knew these two characters from the beginning. As the story progresses, so did my attachment to them. As most love stories go, there will be hiccups along the way, and since I felt so invested in these characters, my heart broke right alongside them. But I was also cheering for their happily ever after, too. Mark your calendar for this February 2018 release. I alr My new favorite adult contemporary novel of the year!

It was also great to find a book about an interracial couple with the sort of real-life situations and conflicts that could arise for them. Alexa Monroe is a smart, strong, fun, honest, independent heroine with all the flaws and insecurities of your everyday woman. She is someone I think we can all relate to in some way. Drew Nichols is a charming, handsome, intelligent young doctor with a fear of commitment. A genuinely good guy, with a not so great track record of breaking hearts. The book overall felt like a smart and rather realistic portrayal of an adult relationship. It never forgets to mention that all relationships have ups and downs, it can't all be sweet kisses and delicious donuts. And that to make it over all the bumps in the road, it is important to honest to allow yourself to be open and vulnerable. Because when two people really love each other, they fight for each other, they work through any problems and come out stronger and just as much in love. Anyways, I adored this book and would definitely recommend it to any of my friends who are fans of adult contemporary romances or maybe even just romantic comedies in general.

After getting out of the elevator, Drew asks Alexa to be his date to his best friend's wedding, and from there the story begins. Overall, I enjoyed this. There was some humor and other fun cheesy moments that I fully enjoy in romantic comedies. However, I felt like the dialogue was stilted at times and didn't flow as well as it could have. The beginning portion in the elevator was awkward (which might have been how the author intended it, but I'm not sure it translated well), and I had a hard time getting into it. The writing became smoother as the story went on, but there were still some problem areas. As a debut novel, I had a good time with Alexa and Drew and their story. With a little polish in the dialogue, I believe this author has a lot of potential for future books. I look forward to reading her other works!

Books about weddings are some of my favorites. Plus anytime the word "fake" is involved - be it a fake date or a fake relationship - I'm 100% sold. The verdict? Adorable, charming, and highly romantic, The Wedding Date is a fantastic addition to the romance genre. I seriously can't believe this is Jasmine's debut novel - it's just that great! The Wedding Date introduces us to Alexa and Drew, two ambitious young professionals who seem to have everything but love in their lives. I adored Alexa from the start. She's smart, determined, and loyal, especially when it comes to her friends and family. However, sometimes she jumps to conclusions where she shouldn't and feels insecure when it comes to diving into the unknown. To put it simply, she's perfectly imperfect, making it all the more easy to relate to her as well as like her. Over the course of the book, Alexa becomes more daring - she goes on a fake date, dives into a long distance relationship, and takes on a challenging project at work - and I just loved seeing this adventurous part of her emerge! Drew, on the other hand, works hard, plays harder, and avoids relationships like the plague if he can help. Commitment scares him, which is why he's become known as the ultimate heartbreaker; however, something changes when he meets Alexa - he becomes softer. At first, I had a love-hate relationship with Drew. On one side, I LOVED how he was with Alexa - sweet and kind, the ultimate gentleman. However, on the other side, I hated how he was often so ready to throw everything away because he was scared to have something real. Gosh, sometimes this boy just needed a smack on the head. The plot in The Wedding Date mainly revolves around Drew and Alexa's developing romance. It reminded me of one of my favorite romantic comedy movies, which made it all the better in my opinion. I loved the start at the wedding - I felt that Jasmine did a great job of establishing the connection between Drew and Alexa. As the book progressed and the weekend trips become more frequent, Drew and Alexa's romance ramped up the heat. It was so much fun to see their relationship continue; however, what I loved the most about it was the fact that it wasn't all smooth sailing. Drew and Alexa faced every day problems - communication issues, not knowing where they stood, juggling work, friendship, and romance, etc. - and I thought it added a realistic edge to this mostly romantic novel. It caused natural drama to occur, and made the novel and the characters stronger in the long run. Additionally, I enjoyed how Jasmine made Drew and Alexa's work such an important part of the book. I loved seeing the additional characters it brought to the mix (especially Carlos!!) as well as the relationships and challenges it brought forth. The change in relationship between Alexa and her sister really managed to warm my heart! In all, The Wedding Date is a book I highly suggest to romance fans, particularly those who love Rainbow Rowell or Sophie Kinsella. Grade: A-

Their relationship develops from there. Based on the cover and the premise I was expecting a story full of humor and charm. Unfortunately there was very little humor, whatever humor was there wasn't funny, and there was not a lot of charm either. The first few chapters were quite good but the rest of the book left me wanting more. The Wedding Date had all the makings of a great modern love story about an interracial couple, both high-powered career-oriented individuals who are trying to navigate a long distance relationship. There was a lot of potential for tension and an interesting dynamic that wasn't realized. It seemed as though their entire relationship consisted of eating donuts, tacos, or pizza, drinking coffee or wine, and having either sex or weird unnecessary fights. I was bored most of the time I was reading, there was not much else happening in the book. I also found both Alexa and Drew immature. They are in their thirties, Drew is a pediatric doctor and Alexa is mayor's chief of stuff but very often they behaved more like teenagers than successful adults. I was frustrated with them both and didn't find their love story endearing. Needless to say The Wedding Date did not live up to my expectations. *ARC provided by the publisher via Bookish First.

    When Drew and Alexa get stuck in an elevator neither expects what comes next. After an instant connection Drew begs her to be his plus one at a weekend wedding. But being his 'fake' girlfriend doesn't seem fake but neither is willing to be the first to reveal their feelings. A fun story of instant connection, fear of revealing too much too soon, and finding happiness that will have you rooting for Alexa and Drew.

    I just didn't click with the writing style, I think. It felt too tell-y instead of show-y. Alexa was a strong character until she wasn't - both the leads felt like they had inconsistent characterization and could flip a switch from being mature to really immature with almost no reason at all. I know many people are excited for this book, and I like the author from her Twitter. So I really wanted to enjoy this, but I just didn't click with it.

    A great, fun romance from the meet-cute (stuck in an elevator), to the proposal (Alexa going as Drew's fake date to a wedding he's dreading), to the development of real feelings as they navigate visits to each other in LA and Berkeley, and all the sex in between. I loved that they both had jobs they cared about, and I appreciated the way Alexa worked through physical insecurities. I enjoyed that it was about an interracial relationship.

This book isn't for kids though as there is some explicit language here. However, I enjoyed the steamy scenes and even had to fan myself after a few because I was blushing so hard. It's tamer though compared to books like 50 SHADES OF GREY, but it's no less fun, I think. I recommend this book to fans of contemporary women's fiction, rom coms, and those who want an easy read with a happy ending.

This is an enjoyable debut. I hope to be reading more books by this author soon!

I can't believe this is a debut novel! It makes me sad because I want to read more from this author ASAP.I loved the characters, I loved how they interacted, and I loved the progression of their love for one another.
